ABOUT DR. YOUNG

After more than 20 years in engineering, Leanne Young joined the Center for BrainHealth to lead its Brain Performance Institute. Prior to joining the Brain Performance Institute, Leanne ran a division of Applied Research Associates, as a defense contractor, and helped establish human vulnerability as a core business area for that company.

Leanne is a nationally recognized expert in blast injury research and worked with the Department of Defense’s Combatting Terrorism Technology Support Office to obtain the first histological evidence of primary blast-induced brain injuries. She worked with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to lead the first clinical trials of blast-induced brain injuries and, working with the Office of Naval Research, she led development of a computer model for planning the medical response to a blast attack on a ship.

Leanne recently completed her doctoral degree in cognitive neuroscience. While studying under Dr. Daniel Krawczyk, Leanne combined her past career goals with a dual focus on social neuroscience and virtual reality-based characterization and treatment of functional impairment associated with traumatic brain injuries
